When to Tell 4 Year Old About Pregnancy

Hello Ladies, I am 10 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child. I have a 4 year old and a 2 1/2 half year old. I recently experienced 2 miscarraiges, one in October at 6 weeks and the other in February at apx 4 weeks. Also almost a year ago I lost my mother in law, whom we were all very close with especially my 4 year old daughter. Since then she continues to ask a lot of detailed questions in regards to death. She seems okay with everything, no major problems with her since then, but just very curious. Due to this and the fact that I have had 2...

3 Year Old Behavior...

Hello there...I am looking for new tricks to have up my sleeve when dealing with my 3 year old daughter. As of late she has taken to shrieeking when put on a time out. I also have not been able to get her to say "I'm sorry for _____" once she's out of her time out. She flat out refuses and walks away or says she "can't". She also has taken to talking or raising her voice over mine to repeat herself when told "no" in getting something. This she picked up from me due to my using it when she started repeating herself so say "noooooo" over her....

Is This a Miscarriage?

I suddenly had a gush of blood today and have been bleeding off and on, but no clots. I am somewhere around week 9-10 and I also have had lots of abdominal pain and a sharp pain right in the middle there. This is Sunday, and I am avoiding the ER at all costs (I hate it) , so I am going to schedule my first appointment to be checked tomorrow and go asap to see what is going on. Any one else who had a miscarriage and experienced pain. This would be my third child, but I have never bled during my previous 2 pregnancies. I have had severe...

No Morning Sickness...

Not that I'm complaining, but I'm 7 weeks along and still no sign of morning sickness. I had terrible morning sickness during the 1st trimester of my 1st pregnancy, and it feels strange to feel so healthy right now. Anybody had morning sickness make its debut after 7 weeks? Or might I just be lucky enough not to get it at all?

Help! My 3 YO Niece Never Sleeps!!!

My sister and her two daughters - 3 and 4 live me. The 3 YO doesn't SLEEP! All hours of the morning she's roaming the house! I'm talking 2AM, 4AM, etc. Sometimes she wakes the 4 YO. The one bad thing is that my sis, when she's asleep, she's "dead" to the world so they come and bother me. The daycare has kept her awake during nap time to help, but this doesn't work! She's up at daycare at 6AM everyday. What can I do to make her SLEEP! HONESTLY, I thought about Benadryl, but she's too young!!!
